Podcasts with a focus on job searching can be inspiring and insightful resources if you’re in the market for flexible work.
Finding job search podcasts that strike just the right note at just the right moment can make a huge difference in your job search success.
I am working with a non-profit, Employment for Seniors, that provides employers free job posting services, reaching thousands of clients throughout Central Ohio. EFS also provides clients who are 50 years of age and older free employment services, including guidance and support from a Volunteer Job Counselor and job referrals from their Job Match System.
In late 2016 we began a podcast called The Successful Encore Career. In this series we have recently added a new element, spotlighting hiring events that paid for by the employer specifically needing to fill full-time or part-time positions, targeting adults 50+, and are hosted at the EFS offices.
The results – each hiring event has exceeded the employers’ expectation in response and qualified leads at the hiring event…and for EFS, an increase in the awareness of the podcast, as well as an increase in our number of downloads – 2x-2.5x our normal download numbers.
This is a great example of how podcasting works for both sides of the employment coin – the employers and the job seekers.
That got me to searching other job search podcasts out there, those that are helping podcast listeners in their search for part-time jobs, remote positions, and other flexible scheduling options. I’ve come up with a few job search podcasts that may be useful for employers, recruiting agencies, and recruitment marketing and communications agencies working with employers, that are looking for examples of what works.
Check out these six job search podcasts for job seekers…
